October 2016 Memory Verse

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life
— John 3:16

We started doing monthly memory verses in my class for the first time in October 2016. Since it was the first time, I wanted the middle schoolers to memorize what I view to be one of the most foundational verses of our Christian faith. Also it's a fairly short one that I thought would be easy for them to memorize.
